You probably saw I was in Vail with my friends, where we did more than ski.  @claytonsilver and I ate a whole mess of crepes — really thin pancakes – at @crespellevail after a long day of getting beat up by the mountain. [Read more…]

I crawled into bed, ready for sleep, but what Catherine said absolutely gobsmacked me


I’m spending this week in Vail skiing with some of my best friends. I haven’t taken a guy’s trip since my bachelor party.  Since Catherine can’t ski during pregnancy, we both thought it’d be a good idea to spend some time with my buddies before the baby comes. [Read more…]

My Pandora stations versus Catherine’s – which are better?

Isn’t Pandora great? I pretty much listen to Pandora all day — at home while I work, in the car while I drive and at the gym while I’m working out. A person’s Pandora stations say a lot about them. In the Lowe’s case, it says opposites must attract, because our stations couldn’t be any more different. We thought it would be fun to list our top 10 most listened to stations and see what you guys think.

It’s about that time of year again- time when old man Lowe puts on his brown wool sweater, sits on his creaky rocking chair, untwists the foil wrapping of a Werther’s Original, and regales us with stories of what it was like when he was the bachelor and what today’s bachelor needs to do to have a long-lasting, happy relationship with the one he chooses.

Ronda Rousey’s sad suicidal confession and what it can teach us all

Something you may not know about me: I’m a huge UFC fan. And even more surprising, I’ve turned Catherine into a fan of the sport too. We order just about every pay-per-view fight and cheer on our favorites. If you haven’t watched it, mixed martial arts is one of the most exciting sports out there today.  [Read more…]
